E Jean Carroll Seeks Additional Compensation Following Trump’s Remarks At CNN Town Hall

After Donald Trump was found guilty in a civil case for s*xually assaulting novelist and columnist E Jean Carroll, she has decided to take him back to court to seek “very substantial” extra damages for the defamatory comments he made about her during a televised CNN town hall the day before.

Lawyers for Carroll filed an amended lawsuit in Manhattan on Monday, seeking an additional $10 million in compensatory damages and more in punitive damages, claiming that the former president’s comments in response to her r@pe allegations have so tarnished her reputation that she lost her long-standing position as an advice columnist for Elle magazine.

On May 9th, a jury in New York found that 27 years ago, in a changing room at a department store in New York City, Trump s*xually assaulted the advice writer. About $2 million was paid on the s*xual ab*se claim, and nearly $3 million was given for defamation for labeling her a liar.

E Jean Carroll Seeks Additional Compensation Following Trump's Remarks At CNN Town Hall

Trump continued to belittle Carroll and her experiences the following evening at a live town hall discussion on CNN in New Hampshire.

In the case to which he is filing an appeal, Trump called her allegations of s*xual assault “fake” and “made-up story” and used the term “hanky-panky” to describe them. He reiterated that he had never seen Carroll and still considered her a “whack job.”

A Twitter Page, The Guardian, shared a post of the same incident on its Twitter Handle.

Carroll has filed a new lawsuit to further punish Trump financially for those defamatory comments.

A day after the verdict, Carroll’s attorneys said that Trump “doubled down” on his negative comments against their client.

The filing argued Trump’s comments at the town hall “show the depth of his malice toward Carroll, since it is hard to imagine defamatory conduct that could possibly be more motivated by hatred, ill will, or spite” and requested “a very substantial punitive damages award in Carroll’s favor both to punish Trump, to deter him from engaging in further defamation, and to deter others from doing the same.”

Roberta Kaplan, Carroll’s attorney, told the New York Times on Monday night that allowing the former president to get away with repeating defamatory words “makes a mockery of the jury verdict and our justice system” in light of Trump’s comments on CNN.

The allegations that Trump r@ped Carroll in a dressing room were first made public in a book Carroll published in 2019. The jury found Trump guilty of s*xually ab*sing Carroll but concluded she had not been r@ped.

Carroll, 79, stated after the verdict that her case was “not about the money” and that the outcome “demolished” the notion of the “perfect victim.”

“Before yesterday there was a concept of the perfect victim,” Carroll says. “The perfect victim always screams, always reports to the police, always makes note when it happened and then her life is supposed to … fold up and she’s never sort of supposed to be happy again.”

“And yesterday we demolished that whole concept. It is gone. It is gone. And I am overwhelmed with happiness for the women of the country. It’s really not about me so much. It’s about every woman.”
